On Wednesday, a northeaster — a brutal storm characterized by a wintry slush of rain, snow, and strong winds — descended upon regions ravaged by Hurricane Sandy. Officials in New York said the storm could set back reconstruction efforts, while New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said he expects many households to lose electricity. "I can see us actually moving backwards," he warned. More than 1,000 flights in and out of the Northeast have already been canceled due to the storm.
